Manhattan, Kansas

'''Manhattan''' is a city in northeastern Kansas in the United States, located at the junction of the Kansas River and Big Blue River (Big Blue River (Kansas)). It is the county seat

The city was founded by settlers from the New England Emigrant Aid Company as a Free-State (Free-Stater (Kansas)) town in the 1850s, during the Bleeding Kansas era. Nicknamed "The Little Apple" as a play on New York City's "Big Apple", Manhattan is today best known as being the home of Kansas State University and has a distinct college town atmosphere. Eight miles (13 km) west of the city is Fort Riley, a United States Army post.

The town was named an All-American City (All-America City Award) in 1952, becoming the first city in Kansas to win the award. More recently, in 2007 CNN and ''Money'' (Money (magazine)) magazine rated Manhattan as one of the ten best places in America to retire young.
